"We are driven by mission, not politics."
California is home to the largest concentration of LGBTQ+ Latina/o/e in the United States, yet the political landscape lacks organized and coordinated political participation from LGBTQ+ Latina/o/e. The large number of LGBTQ+ Latina/o/e - particularly in Southern California-creates an opportunity for us to organize around issues of mutual concern and interest.
Homophobia in our Community Needs to Be Addressed
Homophobia in Latina/o/e communities contributes to second-class status and a host of social and economic problems such as: hate crimes; domestic violence; alcohol and drug abuse; employment discrimination; and increasing rates of HIV infection, among others. Political leaders need to be aware of these issues.
Huge Opportunities for Increased Civic Engagement
LGBTQ+ Latina/o/e are politically disenfranchised. As a result, LGBTQ+ Latina/o/e voices are nearly absent from policy debates and the democratic process. There is a need to educate and encourage LGBTQ+ Latina/o/e on how they can increase their involvement in the political process and advocate for issues of interest.
Empowerment of LGBTQ+ Latina/o/e communities requires organized and sustained opportunities for leadership and professional development. A distinct and organized political mobilization effort is required to address the near absence of visible LGBTQ+ Latina/o/e in positions of leadership and to effectively advocate for issues of importance to LGBTQ+ Latina/o/e.
HONOR PAC is a mission driven non-partisan organization focusing on the issues and policies affecting the LGBTQ+ Latina/o/e communities and other underserved populations. HONOR PAC seeks a more fair and equitable society for all.
